... that I won't have any spare time whatsoever during this semester!
Okay, that might not be completely true, but almost anyway ... Things are really getting very intense right now, and it looks like it will stay that way throughout the semester! I really enjoy learning Hebrew, it's very very exciting, but it is certainly demanding enough, that's for sure! We found out today, that instead of having an exam after approximately every five weeks, which is pretty "normal", we're gonna have one every TEN weeks!!! Gaaaah!! Talk about massive exam!!! *yikes* I'm getting nervous already, and the big exam isn't until the 29th of March! (We have one "test" or whatever you want to call it before, on the 19th of February)
But things are progressing, I can already read words and "sentences" in Hebrew! Totally cool!
Unfortunately, I can't really share my knowledge in Hebrew in daily talks since we're completely learning the Bible-Hebrew and almost nothing of the modern-day Hebrew! But it's still amazingly cool, that's for sure!
I met someone the other day, who took this course a while back, and he said it got better and better, since that in learning the language you also learn a lot about the people that wrote and spoke it, the culture and the times they lived in, and that of course makes it even more interesting and exciting!
I know I tend to focus my blog entries more or less completely on my Uni lectures now, I'm sorry about that, but since the course is so intense it really takes up a lot of my time and I think about it a lot! I even heard from a fellow student today, that her boyfriend had woken up during the night because she was talking about Hebrew letters in her sleep!
Guess we're all getting completely brain-washed on this course!
Take care, guys!
